When entering fine grain password policy, what do the negative numbers in the lab mean?

Different data types have different formats. In our lab involving Fine Grain Passwords, some of the data entry in the lab called for you to enter data with negative numbers. It looks like that was in the a time field. I’ve always entered that data in the form of DAY:HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS. Hey, it looks like it will take both. Next time around, try to enter it in that for. Data can be interpreted using a number of algorithms. I was not able to locate the one in question, but this is the documentation from Microsoft on one of the fields for the acceptable data ranges:

00:00:00:00 through msDS-MaximumPasswordAgevalue
